If you’re anything like me, you have “challenges” with exercise and body movement on a regular basis. Read on if you want to learn how to overcome the challenge.
I’ve always, since I can remember, had a love-hate relationship with exercise. I wasn’t the girl who was picked 1st gym class because my skills were phenomenal. I just wasn’t highly motivated to get my sweat on. Structured exercise routines just have never been my thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to sweat. If I’m exercising and it doesn’t make me sweat, I feel like I’m wasting my time. But staying consistent with the sweat routine…that’s been the issue.
I just wasn’t connected to my body in a way that would keep me coming back for more.
It wasn’t until yoga came into my life that I crave getting sweaty on a regular basis. Here’s why:
It’s the only form of body movement that has taught me about my body on a deep level. I’ve never felt so connected to my body in a good way, until now. It’s given me self-confidence, self-compassion, perseverance, and love all at the same time. And yes, it can do the same for you.
Yoga is NOT about achieving pretzel-like poses.
It’s actually way (WAY) more than that. It’s a journey towards improving the relationship you have with your body and mind, which is so crucial if you’re struggling with creating healthier eating and lifestyle habits.
So I invite you today to incorporate yoga into your life. You may think it’s a trendy fad, but I grew up watching my aunt do yoga and meditate on her mat back in the ’70’s. When yoga becomes a part of you, it never leaves.
